A Kentucky teen suspected in the shooting deaths of his parents and younger sister was killed Saturday morning in a shootout with police in Maryland.

Police said 16-year-old Jason Hendrix opened fire on officers, wounding one, in Baltimore County after he crashed during a pursuit.

Officers then fatally shot the teen, who police said was carrying with him a 9mm semiautomatic handgun, two .38-caliber pistols, a double-barreled shotgun and backpack “completely full of ammo.”

They contacted authorities in Corbin, Kentucky, during their investigation of the fatal shooting, and police went to the teen’s home and found the bodies of his parents, Kevin and Sarah Hendrix, and 12-year-old sister, Grace.

Police said all three were shot at least twice, and a pillow was used to muffle the gunshots and then left on each victim’s face.

Kevin Hendrix was still wearing his coat and tie from work, and police believe the teen ambushed his mother as she arrived home from teaching social work at Union College.

Investigators believe they were shot to death Wednesday, and authorities said Jason Hendrix then went to a church youth group meeting that evening and told friends he had found his father’s guns.

Police said the teen, a high school junior and ROTC cadet, was angry with his parents for taking away his computer privileges.

The pastor at the Forward Community Church attended by the family said Jason Hendrix, a fan of the movie “God’s Not Dead” and the book “Heaven Is For Real,” was baptized in December and helped set up equipment every Sunday morning for services.

“People want to ask questions,” said Drew Mahan, the founding pastor at the 3-year-old church. “Why? How? I simply looked at folks today and said, ‘I don’t know.’”

Critics slam Alan Dershowitz after he fights to defend his own questionable reputation

Published

Formerly respected attorney Alan Dershowitz shifted into damage control Saturday on Twitter, perhaps in an attempt to win his way back into the dark heart of Donald Trump, at least for the moment.

Dershowitz had been a bad boy earlier this week when he told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that “if you’re betting money you can’t afford to lose, you have to bet that the outcome of the election will not be reversed.” That couldn’t have pleased the home offices at Mar-A-Lago and Moscow.
